E3 2007: DiRT PS3 The Best Version, Faster Framerate
In a recent E3 interview with CodeMasters designer, Matthew Horseman, we learn that the PS3 version of DiRT: Colin McRae Off-Road will be the best of the three available versions. During the interview, Horseman goes into detail as to why this is the case.
He said CodeMasters was able to best optimize the game for the PS3, primarily due to the fact that the engine in the game uses Sony's PSSG rendering platform "at its core." In this way, they learned how to access all the little "nooks and crannies" in the machine, and the result is apparently clear.
"The PS3 version looks fantastic compared to the 360 version; it's a slimmer, healthier, younger, buffer version, and the framerate is better," said Horseman.
The game also takes advantage of the PlayStation Logitech wheels - including ones for the PS2 - and boasts 7.1 stereo surround sound. You can expect to see DiRT: Colin McRae Off-Road this September, and we'll also be getting a playable demo before that date. So don't miss your chance to check out what could be the best off-road racing title of the generation! Motorstorm, you got competition.
